Matthew Douglas Gibbs was born on January 12, 2006 and was 8lbs. 3oz. at one week early. He is still a big boy and can eat meat like no other! His middle name is my grandfather’s name. Matthew is the first boy in 3 generations on my mom’s side, so my grandfather (PopPop) has been surrounded by girls his whole life. Besides that fact, my PopPop is a WWII veteran and exemplifies everything we admire about that generation of men. He is 93 years old and he and Matthew are two peas in a pod. They even play catch together! As a five year old boy, he is into the usual-dinosaurs, Star Wars, sports, and building anything. Fortunately for me, having no experience with boys, he also has a sensitive side. He loves his mama and is all about the justice. Holy cow! Don’t mess with the rules in our house. A strong sense of justice and the memory of an elephant makes him quite the force to be reckoned with. He is such a joy to watch. He loves school, especially math. He is so fun to teach! Everything is interesting and new to him which inspires me daily.
